We examine and treat patients suffering from eye diseases and injuries. Our most common patient groups are patients suffering from glaucoma, ocular inflammation, corneal disease or macular degeneration.
We perform, among other studies, optical coherence tomography, fluorescence angiography, visual field examination and laser treatment
You need a doctor's referral to be admitted. We also treat emergency patients. Emergency patients require an emergency referral. Before referring a patient, the referring doctor should always consult our doctor on duty. Only true emergencies, such as injuries piercing the eye, are treated without a referral.
A clinic fee is collected from your visit. A day surgical fee is collected from day surgical procedures.
Eye examinations tend to be time consuming, so make sure you have 2 to 3 hours available. Eye drops that dilate your pupils are used in our examinations, which affects your ability to see. In these cases, driving a car after the examination is prohibited.
The day surgical cataract team received the Achiever of the year award of the hospital district in 2012. The macula degeneration team received the Achiever of the year award of the hospital district in 2010.
